Housing and Homelessness Services

MVMC's limited housing and homelessness services were formalized in July 2019 with the assistance and guidance of the State of Utah Office of Homelessness and the Grand County Local Homeless Council (GCLHC). 

Factors that influenced MVMC’s decision to formalize these services included: 1) The rise of both chronically and situationally homeless persons coming to MVMC for services, 2) The affordable and low-income housing crisis in Grand County, 3) The lack of correct data relating to the actual need for housing and homelessness assistance in Grand County at the State level.

In 2022 the GCLHC created Project SOL (Safe Outdoor Living). This project is based in harm-reduction framework and connects homeless individuals with new gear that will help them to live outdoors safely when housing and proper shelter are unavailable.

This program has been highly utilized since its first day and the GCLHC is always looking for donations of new:

  • Tents (2 and 4 person)
  • Adult Sleeping bags
  • Sleeping pads
  • Single burner stoves
  • Stove fuel
  • Headlamps
  • Backpacking packs

Items can be shipped to or dropped off at the MVMC.
